Putting Things in Perspective

Recently, large tornadoes devastated Oklahoma, and twenty six people died. We must remember that kids become orphans by tragic events such as this. We must do all we can to help them. We should be thankful for what we have, Alhamdulliah. Life is short, so make the best of it. When I whine about doing schoolwork when I could be playing with my friends, I think about the people in Oklahoma and orphans around the world. It’s better to not have enough time then not to have a house. Sometimes we get caught up in the small things, but there are people with real problems. It makes us appreciate what we have. Insha Allah, one day there will be more orphans being saved than kids becoming orphans.
